It works like a charm. Thanks again Robert! :)

Here's output of uname -a which has some redundant versions (I'm using CorePlus and it's 32bit obviously):

Linux box 3.0.21-tinycore #3021 SMP Sat Feb 18 11:54:11 EET 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Update: sorry to bother you Robert! At least I learned something today from @curaga, thanks!

@idoit:

Those two fields are the "cpu" and "platform" parts. On GNU uname they would say for example "Intel Pentium 2" and "GenuineIntel", but busybox uname doesn't go the extra mile for a few x86 cpus (they are coded in the uname source).

Not a bug.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Hi Tiny Core Team!

I've been waiting for this final release some time since the RC's were very stable. Good work! Thanks a lot for this excellent cut of TC!

Have fun developing TC further,

tce-update error.

Using boot code tce=sda1/tcl
/etc/sysconfig/tcedir doe point to /mnt/sda1/tcl/

tce-update responds with:
Checking for Easy Mode Operation...
Could not find a valid tce directory!

i can confirm this behavior.
my bootcode: tce=LABEL=tc/tce4
/etc/sysconfig/tcedir points to /mnt/sdb2/tce4.

Just tested with boot code of

tce=sda2/tcTEST

also tested boot code of

tce=LABEL="test"/tcTEST

both cases worked as expected.
Please provide more information such as showbootcodes and result of ls /etc/sysconfig/tcedir

I showed my boot codes and tcedir.
That machine is not available for testing.
I tested on another machine, and cannot reproduce.
